    How many of you guys use eels for bait, and what is your method of choice? I used them cut up in two inch slices, and I caught a 10.5 pound gar (pics to come later once I get them processed) :smile2: . it was around 4 feet long. I used a slip bobber rig. I have heard they are very good cat baits.

    when striper fishing I like them whole and live. For catfish about the same as you but on the bottom, carolina rigged.

    yeah, i had one slip-bobber rig, and one carolina rig, but I got the gar on the slip bobber.
